Public Storage Orders More INSOMNIAC® CIA

September 3, 2019 – Phoenix, AZ, OpenTech Alliance, the leading developer of innovative smart connected technology solutions for the self storage industry, announced today that Public Storage, the world’s largest owner, operator, and developer of self storage facilities, has placed a second order of INSOMNIAC CIA systems, the industry’s first cloud-based access control solution, as the company continues to rollout CIA to its entire portfolio.

In order to handle the large roll-out, OpenTech has ramped up its technical support team so Public Storage employees and other customers can speak to a live person if they need help implementing the system.

“We were excited when Public Storage initially approached us with this project,” stated Robert Chiti, OpenTech Alliance CEO.  “We value our reputation as an innovation partner in this industry and are humbled when operators trust us to solve their challenges – particularly one so closely tied to the protection of their assets and tenants. INSOMNIAC CIA has not only transformed access control, but sparked the evolution of an entire platform of smart-connected self storage solutions to help owners work SMARTER, connect with tenants, simplify operations and grow their business.”

INSOMNIAC CIA is part of OpenTech IoE (Internet of Everything) – OpenTech’s intelligent platform of smart-connected self storage solutions. Operators gain access to real-time reporting in the OpenTech IoE Control Center, which provides visibility to what is going on at the property and allows operators to analyze trends and streamline operations using the available controls and reports.
